This unusual example of Roseville Matt Green measures about 9 t. X 8.75" x 2". I believe it was Roseville's first wall pocket design. The form is shown in a catalog page on p. 94 of Bomm's Roseville in All Its Splendor.The shape number is 324, which is the lowest wall pocket shape number in Roseville's production. There is also an interesting architectural support inside, not seen in later designs. Probably made the same year as Chloron and Egypto, which were both short-lived 1906 lines. Or it could be an even earlier design. This design is "intersectional" with all kinds of collecting / interest groups, including witchcraft, feminism, Art Nouveau, paganism/wicca, sexuality, Arts and Crafts Movement, and more.
